Taking a screenshot captures everything that's happening on the iPhone display to the Photos app. The feature is widely used and can even be configured to snap a screenshot with back tap gestures. What happens to the Dynamic Island in screenshots on the iPhone 14 Pro and later?
Screen recordings are a great way to capture and share content from the iPhone display. On the iPhone 14 Pro and later, the Dynamic Island is automatically captured. This happens because the Dynamic Island is being used to display the recording countdown and camera in use indicator light.
The Dynamic Island is officially supported on the iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Pro Max, and later devices. The key to Dynamic Island is its flawless unification with hardware. Apple uses the Dynamic Island to obscure the cutouts for Face ID sensors and the front-facing camera, making the area a useful part of the home screen.
Introduced on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, the Dynamic Island consolidates notifications, alerts, and other updates around the TrueDepth front facing camera. Apple touts the feature as a perfect blend of software and hardware.
